What happens when a freight class code is wrong?
It might be tempting to declare that your shipment is a lower freight class than it actually is in order to secure a lower price, however, carriers will re-classify your freight for accuracy and charge you a fee for having to do so.
Does stackability affect freight class?
Yes. If your shipment can be stacked, it allows the carrier to fit more freight into their truck.
